500 Bottles, 58 Taps, Nothin' But Craft: World of Beer in Tempe Opening August 8th
For beer enthusiasts who have been pacing up and down Tempe's Mill Avenue, eyes fixed longingly on the 100 year old bank building (and former home of American Apparel), and with empty beer glass in hand: your wait is over.
The World of Beer (WOB) franchise will officially open its first West Coast location on the corner of Mill Avenue and 6th Street in Tempe at noon on Wednesday, August 8th.
Featuring a staggering 58 rotating beers on tap from more than 40 different countries and 500 beers available by the bottle, WOB is also planning to add local craft brews to the tap. And if you're unsure what brew's best for you, beer aficionados behind the bar are there to assist and let you try a three-ounce sample or two.
Plus, WOB's got some special events planned for its opening week and (duh) the upcoming NFL season.
WOB's opening week line-up of activities starts Wednesday, August 8th, with live music from 9 p.m. to midnight. Thursday is Ladies Night "Pint Out" where ladies get half off select drafts. The live entertainment continues on Friday night. And on Saturday, August 11, WOB will host Tempe's first "Brewery Spotlight" with a special Four Peaks Brewing lineup, live music, and gourmet dogs from the Short Leash Hot Dogs food truck.
And when the NFL season rolls in, WOB plans to offer complimentary tailgate food for its customers.
Want to party private-like? WOB has turned the building's bank vault into it's own VIP space with TV's and seating for up to 15 people.
